52CC - week 23, aqua & yellow

The prompt for week 23 is a photo, predominately aqua and yellow.  Now, yellow isn't really a colour I am fond of, and certainly I don't see it as a Christmas colour, so I did a birthday card and a get well card instead.  I decided to go with using inks, after seeing an example on UKS from one of the other participants (thank you Silver Tiger!)

The get well card was inspired by something I found on Pinterest, here.  Simple stamping and some scored lines to add interest to the white space :-)

For the birthday card, I revisited the embossing resist technique, stamping & embossing the flowers in white and smooshing distress ink over in Peacock Feathers, squeezed Lemonade and Salty Ocean.

I won't say they are my favourite cards ever, but they are acceptable :-)


  1. Both cards are lovely - I wouldn't have chosen the colours but they are really pretty together. It's good to get out of your comfort zone sometimes!

  2. Gorgeous colour combo - two really lovely cards xx

    Hope you are feeling better now, we missed you at the crop yesterday x

  3. This keeps reminding me to try the scoring technique. I'm always forgetting!
